Abstract [en]

Mechanical scaling is one of the most complex operations of all in the mining process. The operators are using both hearing, sight and feel to read the rock and to know where to scale and where to leave. They say they go on gut feeling in great extent, something that comes with experience. The scaling machine is placed into the edge of unsecured and newly blasted rock to hammer off the blocks that has become loose after the blast, but not enough to fall down. It goes without sayingthat it is a risky job. Boliden Mineral has a desire to remotely control this operation from above ground and thus became this challenge a degree project in industrial design. With a focus on ease of use and the sensory feedback, the project aims to develop a proposal on the driver situation that allows the operator to do an as equally good job above as below ground.
